Gernot Rohr may leave his role as the head coach of the Super Eagles in the coming days.

The German led Nigeria to a third-place finish in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, after they missed the last two editions.

However, Rohr has come under criticisms from certain quarters, for what some perceive as ‘lack of tactical nous’ or, in other words, an ‘inability to read matches’.

It is understood that the 66-year-old has told close associates, that he is uncertain if he wants to carry on.

“A lot of things have been going on but he has taken it all because he does not want to cause any controversy.

“But now, he is not sure if he will continue,” sources have told ESPN.

Rohr is due to meet Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick this week as part of that assessment.

And if both parties come to an agreement, a parting of ways might come sooner than most expect.
